MLS: Sporting Kansas City at FC Dallas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports


Annnnd yeah...


Yep...more of the same


FC Dallas begins their homestand with the first of two games at Toyota Stadium this week with Sporting Kansas City tonight.

Both teams are on opposite ends of the playoff picture, with SKC fighting it out for the top spot in the Western Conference and FC Dallas is just fighting to remain in the playoff picture.

FC Dallas notes:

Key player for FC Dallas - Bressan - Instead of picking out an attacking player, we still need to focus on the defense here and that will rest with the Brazilian as Matt Hedges will be out on a yellow card accumulation.

Third meeting this year - The teams are meeting for the third and final time this season with each winning on the other’s home ground. Paxton Pomykal and Jesús Ferreira scored early in each half as FCD took a 2-1 win on July 31 at Children’s Mercy Park. Alan Pulido and Daniel Sallói each had a goal and an assist as Sporting claimed a 2-0 win on Aug. 14 at Toyota Stadium.

Scoring at home - FC Dallas has the 16th most goals scored at home (19), while the SKC is sixth with the most goals scored on the road (18). Both teams have scored most of their goals in the second half – FC Dallas with 22 and SKC with 24.

Why you play the kids - FC Dallas Homegrowns have scored a total of 20 goals (52.6% of FCD’s goals) and recorded 15 assists this season.
